Michigan ($$$) v Duke ($$$)

Post by admin123 » Mon Mar 19, 2018 7:35 pm

-The schools you are considering
Really struggling between Michigan (my undergrad institution) and Duke.

-The total Cost of Attendance (COA) of each. COA = cost of tuition + fees + books + cost of living (COL) + accumulated interest - scholarships.
The tuition at Duke is higher than the tuition at Michigan because I am admitted to the JD/LLM program. Though the cost of living is comparatively lower in Durham than in Ann Arbor. Michigan is offering 150K and Duke is offering 135K.

-How you will be financing your COA, i.e. loans, family, or savings
I am international and my family is paying for the COA.

-Where you are from and where you want to work, and other places where you have significant ties (if any)
From China, and honestly, I am equally interested in the Bay Area, Chicago, and NYC after graduating law school. Cali, Illinois, and NY might also be the most useful states to pass the bar in for international students (correct me if I'm wrong). Planning on going back to China after 2-3 years to practice.

-Your general career goals
Biglaw, international organizations, and finally, foreign law firms in China/Asia.
